      Refrain from the use of any mind-altering drugs, alcohol, or intoxicants prior to or

      Always dress in a professional manner, proper dress being defined as attire suitable
       and consistent with accepted business and professional practice.
      Shall not be affiliated with or employed by any business that utilizes any form of
       sexual suggestiveness or explicit sexuality in its advertising or promotion of
       services, or in the actual practice of its services.

      Shall not employ massage techniques for which therapists have not had adequate
       training and shall represent education, training, qualifications, and abilities
       honestly.

       practice good judgment regarding the application of massage techniques utilized.

       received adequate training and/or certification. Therapists shall not make false
       claims regarding the potential benefits of the techniques rendered.
